Ensuring that each and every member of our workforce is supported to grow and develop is very important to us and key to having a meaningful conversation about performance and professional development. We want to ensure that every individual has an up-to-date appraisal,these are a key way of reflecting on performance and for agreeing priorities for professional development over the coming year which are then detailed in your development plan.

By the end of the year, it is expected that everyone will have an up-to-date appraisal and personal development plan, which means one completed after 1 July 2017.

There are four distinct groups of individuals and to make it as easy as possible four booklets have been produced. Every template you will need has been pulled into the booklet. Please select the appropriate one:

After the appraisal has taken place:

Managers must update Oracle (via managers self service) with the date of the appraisal meeting and upload the final agreed version of the completed appraisal form.

Development plans should be copied to the Academy Team to inform workforce development planning for the 2017/18 year.

You may also find it helpful to refer to the guidance on Inside Devon for more general information about appraisals and other ideas on how to prepare.

The annual declaration form that all staff should complete is here.
